Book Club Brunch – Chapter 4

Book Club Brunch – Chapter 4

Hello Imaginary friends,

We hit a bit of a landmark, and I didn’t even realize it!!

Back when we hit our 50th post, I did a little update on my reading goals for the year, mentioning that I was way ahead on my goal of reading 30 books before my 30th birthday. Well, it’s been a little over 3 months since then, we’ve officially hit our 100th post, and I can report that I’ve officially passed 30 books! Yay!

So, since I bypassed an opportunity to give you a reading progress recap, here’s a quick recap of everything I’ve read in my 29th year:

  1. Outlander, by Diana Gabladon (our review)
